Positive mental health programme to make return to Kerry this month

A free positive mental health programme will delve into managing everyday stresses and is open to registration at aware.ie.

Aware will bring a six-week Life Skills Group Programme to the Rose Hotel in Tralee from Thursday, January 31, and online registration is now available. The programme is open to anyone over 18 and is free, but a €30 deposit is required, refundable once one contacts Aware after completing the course's six modules.

The evening programme, based on cognitive behavioural therapy, will see nine hours' work spread over the six weeks, teaching participants about stress management; recognising and managing unhelpful thoughts; and learning new ways of thinking.

Further information is available from aware.ie or by phoning (01) 661 7211.
